“Virginia’s unemployment rate recently reached its lowest point since before the Great Recession, which is great news for career-minded students,” said Wes Ricketts, senior vice president of LearnHowToBecome.org. “The schools on our list have shown that they offer the educational experience and resources that leave their students career-ready.”

To be included on the “Best Colleges in Virginia” list, schools must be regionally accredited, not-for-profit institutions. Each college is also scored on additional data that includes employment and academic resources, annual alumni earnings 10 years after entering college, opportunities for financial aid and such additional statistics as student/teacher ratios and graduation rates.
